FFN UK has now been formally adopted by our parent organisation, the Global FFN.
We’ve got a very smart logo, and a brand new website. Plus, we have endorsements for the global ‘Call to Action’ and hence the development of FFN UK from pretty much all of the UK societies involved in the care of patients with fragility fracture, including of the course the Orthopaedic Trauma Society.
Thank you all for your help so far. Not bad for the first 4 months!
FFN UK has got two events planned, so here are you the dates for your diary:
FFN UK Hip Fracture Review Meeting
Wolfson College | Oxford
8 May 2019
This multidisciplinary meeting, supported by the BOA, will bring together the leading experts from orthopaedics, geriatrics, anaesthesia, nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation and secondary fracture prevention. However, the emphasis is on discussion and shared-learning, so please bring along your own experiences, suggestions and questions.
The number of places is limited to 120, so please book early. Priority will be given to ‘teams’ of attendees i.e. a multidisciplinary team from each hospital is preferred to a single representative.
FFN UK is not a new society and is certainly not trying to displace the existing professional societies involved in this area. It is specifically a ‘network’; a banner to integrate and support existing activity related to the care of patients with fragility fracture in the UK. It is also the UK branch of a much larger Global Fragility Fracture Network.
The three pillars of the FFN are to provide the best Acute Care, Rehabilitation, and Secondary fracture prevention
The Congress runs 28-30th August.
We are honoured to be hosting the Global FFN Congress in the UK this year.

The FFN is a global organisation, which was founded in order to create a multidisciplinary network of experts for improving treatment and secondary prevention of fragility fractures. The FFN mission and vision underline this and are the foundation for all decisions taken. The FFN believes that useful policy change can only happen at a national level and multidisciplinary national coalitions are the most effective way to achieve this. Hence the FFN acts as a global template for creating national alliances in as many countries as possible.
